Dr. Arnold Klein Won't Give Up

8/6/2009 1:20 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

The judge unceremoniously pulled the plug on Dr. Arnold Klein's attempt to insert himself in the Michael Jackson custody case on Monday ... but last night his lawyer told us the doctor will go back for a second round.

Mark Vincent Kaplan: Click to watch
Klein's lawyer, Mark Vincent Kaplan, told us last night outside Boa Steakhouse in West Hollywood he'll file legal papers on Klein's behalf sometime after the beginning of September.

Last Monday, Kaplan went before the judge and expressed Klein's concerns over parenting issues involving Jackson's three kids. There are reports Dr. Klein could be the biological father, but he's never acknowledged it. The judge checkmated Kaplan, noting that Klein had no legal standing to lodge objections to the custody settlement between Katherine Jackson and Debbie Rowe.

But clearly Kaplan has something up his sleeve ...

Stay tuned

TMZ what the hell happened!! You guys were all over the MJ story, were ready to do another live update and then POOF!! You're barely touching the subject!

Did someone tell you guys to back off? What gives? Where are the updates on the investigation? What's going on with the LaQuaQua sisters? Who is Stacy Howe and did she work for a radiology department recently? You didn't even touch that Michael was going to be buried at Forest Lawn.

Come on, guys! If you're backing off the story at least tell us so we don't keep coming back here to see pictures of bad sunburns, doped up sons of celebrities and crazy Paula.

MJ WAS A JUNKIE    

I say go for it Dr. Arnold Klein if those are your kids. Do what you need to do. Get those kids from those money hungry Jacksons. They are all about the money anyways. GO DOC GO.

Dumbass (alert). You're right, you are a dumbass. If you're too stupid to do any research about Michael Jackson, far be it from me to attempt to enlighten you; my time is valuable. But then again, you're probably one of those haters that don't want to know the truth anyway, so even if I did try to smarten you up, you would still want to believe the worst.

Klein needs his butt hauled off to jail for being the drug dealer he is. Out of everyone he appears to be the most responsible for the continued addiction of MJ. This sleeze has no ground to stand on even if he is the biological sperm donor. Thank God the judge slammed him down this week and I am sure he will again!

I think Arnold Klein is just trying to be a good friend. He was a friend of Michael's, I'm sure Michael confided a great deal in him.

I think he's just trying to do right by his friendship and watch out for the children of a friend he loved.

You're all just bound and determined to make anyone and everything EXCEPT Michael Jackson responsible for every "bad" thing Michael Jackson ever did. If that's true, he can't take credit for the good, either; you can't have it both ways.

Whoever and whatever is responsible for the drug addiction, no addict is a good parent. Oh, they may make visible efforts and express good intentions, and lavish lots of money, but you're not being a good parent when all the kids ever see is YOU OPERATING ON DOPE. Period, end of story. Judgmental? Tough beans. Somebody needed to judge him up close and personal a long time ago, and all he let near him was sycophants, servants, operatives and money-grubbers.

24. Klein and Rowe were perfectly happen to stay in the background and not want anything to do with the kids when Michael was alive. Now all of a sudden, there is a change of heart? Come on!!! Children do not have to be born of one's DNA to be their children. That would be like saying that a child who was adopted isn't the child of the adoptees. Love is more important than genes. And I have to say that I am SOOOO tired of hearing Michael referred to as 'Wacko Jacko'. This originated from an ignorant british tabloid and it sincerely bothered MJ, more so since the birth of his children. Man, can't people accept others as human beings? Skin color, nationality, or economics do not make one person less human than another. That would be like me saying that people who pierce their lips, enlarge their earlobes or do anything else that would be considered 'abnormal' are all 'wackos'. Will the ignorance, judgmentalism and racism ever end?

not unique    

I wouldn't consider him much of a "friend" if he goes to court to prove the kids are actually his.. He may not want the Jacksons watching over them, but I think it would be completely selfish to screw these poor kids up any more than they will be by all this. He should be in jail anyway.

those are michael jackson's kids, they all look alike, prince and paris look alike, prince and blanket alike, they have the same eyes as michael, same bone stucture, and have the same dimple chin, although paris' is very slight it is still there, ugly klein and debbie rowe could not have had those beautiful children, yeah, klein was around for 20 yrs or so as michael's "friend", but michael was surrounded by enablers unfortunately, and i am sure klein was one of them. if michael wanted klein to help with his kids, he would have been in the will, but was not, just like debbie and joe jackson were left out. this man just wants money and fame that is all, he is looking more and more the greedy bastard, and mr. kaplan is giving all lawyers a bad name. if michael thought for any minute in any way, shape or form that his children (whom he loved very very very much) would not have been well taken care of by his mother, he would not have left them to her. its as simple as that. i don't get why it is so hard for people to believe that michael actually fathered children, this isn't rocket science, so what if their skin is white, there are quite a few instances of bi-racial kids from black and white parents coming out looking black or white, their skin is white, but their facial features, (especially blanket's) match michael's both pre and post plastic surgery.

Umm,,, if he REALY cared about the wellbeing of the kids why did he leave Blanket out? Maybe because he thought Blanket was a bit too dark and looks more like Michael, so this wouldn't be very easy to prove? I suppose he can order a DNA test. Then maybe he will shut up. Even IF he was the bio-dad of the oldest two kids (which I doubt), he has absolutely no legal standing, Michael was the father. He will only manage to confuse and damage the kids more with his antics. HIs timing and motives are suspicious too, especially now that he is the main police suspect of getting MJ hooked to painkillers!

doc murry

1.why no talk of a dna test for the kids ,,hmmm well
2.how can such a great dad hang a baby out of a 4th floor window ,,hmmm im sure
3.how can such an addict be such a great dad when he was obviously addicted to some nasty drugs
4.do you really think believe those kids were in a healthy enviroment???????
5.why couldnt this father of the year concieve a child in the normal way?

Of course Klein and Rowe were in the background, Rowe was a surrogate, Klein a friend, and Michael very alive and a great father. I think there is much more unintellectual conspiracy here than reality is revealing. Nobody is making a claim to the children. Speaking for the children's interest is perfectly logical given that Michael confided to Klein about the details of his father's beating of him and his brothers.

People need to read more and imagine less here. The facts are quite clear regarding those whom Michael trusted and Klein was certainly one of these people.
